National Facial Protection Month

It’s that time of year again. Cheering crowds, the smell of concession stand food and the warm sun fill thehockey mask air. It is the season for recreational and organized sports! April also happens to be National Facial Protection Month, and it couldn’t be at a better time. With so many injuries that occur in every sport’s season, it is imperative to pay extra attention to protecting you or your child’s face and head. Chiropractic Center of Kennesaw, located in Kennesaw, GA, wants you to be prepared this sports season!

5 Suggestions to Protect Your Head and Face this Season

  1. Mouth Guards –  Wearing a mouthguard isn’t always the most comfortable experience, but it beats costly dental bills and a painful dental issue if an accident were to happen.
  2. Helmets for the Old Noodle – Helmets absorb the energy of an impact and help prevent damage to the head. Concussions are on the rise this time of year, so protecting your head is even more important.
  3. Protective Eyewear –  Eyes are extremely vulnerable to damage, especially when playing contact sports. Eye pokes are almost inevitable and painful.
  4. Face Shields –  A baseball, hockey puck or any of the objects used in a respective sport can cause real damage to the face if unprotected. Better to be safe than sorry!
